Maryland, ranked No. 2 in women's lacrosse, tuned up for Saturday's visit to No. 1 Harvard with a 15-4 rout of Towson State yesterday.
The Terps (6-0) trailed in the second minute, but took a 6-2 lead into halftime and rapidly added to it. Freshman Laura Harmon led Maryland with four goals, and Betsy Elder, Leigh Frendberg, Maureen Scott and Ann Krumbiegel had two apiece.
"We're playing very well right now," Maryland coach Cindy Timchal said. "We were pretty banged up from playing Temple Sunday, and I was worried about Towson State. It seems like Jen's been out to watch us every game."
